Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 1

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

We both like sailing, ______we live near the sea.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 1
The correct answer is Option (c)

SO is used when a reason is expressed first.

The reason they live near the sea is that they like sailing.

The remaining options are incorrect because:

BECAUSE is used as a conjunction when we express a reason. AND is used in the meaning of IN ADDITION TO.

BUT is used to express contrast.

Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 2

Fill in the blank with the best possible option:

People such________your friend John angry me.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 2
The given sentence is about the types of people. To introduce the examples or the types of a particular banner, we pair 'as' with 'such' and create the idiom or phrase 'such as'. Men like John are a type of person. Hence option B is correct. That's When paired with 'such' refers to an extent of something as in 'It was such an interesting story that I finished reading it in one sitting'. It does not refer to an example. Hence, option A is incorrect. 'It refers to a condition, a hypothetical situation that may or may not be true as in 'I'll go if you come with me'. There isn't any hypothetical situation here, and 'if doesn't pair up with 'such' as they have different meanings, hence option C is incorrect. 'Or' is used to present a choice between two things 'this or that'. There isn't a choice between the hobbies in this sentence, hence it can't be paired with 'such', and option D is incorrect.
Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 3

Choose the option that best fills in the blank:

We stopped talking_______that we could watch the opera.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 3
'So that' is used to talk about a purpose. In the given sentence, the purpose is to watch the opera. 'So that' is used to explain the purpose. Options A, B, and D are grammatically wrong. Thus, option C is the correct answer.
Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 4

Identify the conjunction in the following sentence:

She rose early in the morning, although she had stayed up late last night

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 4
A conjunction's main function is to join or combine two clauses into a statement. In the given sentence, the clause "she had stayed up late last night" is subordinate/dependent as it depends on the main clause "She rose early in the morning" for its full meaning. The remaining word that's left behind is "although", and the clauses are separated by a comma hence it's easy to identify them as a clause each, also they're both grammatically correct. 'Although' combines them both, hence it's a conjunction. Specifically, it's a subordinating conjunction that is used for contrast-related sentences as the given sentence, which is contrast in meaning "rose early" and "stayed up late last night". Hence "although" is a conjunction and option A is correct. 'In' is a preposition as it links the noun "morning" to the verb "rose", without which the phrase "rose early the morning" sounds incomplete. It's a preposition, as it connects the noun to the verb, and does not connect the clauses, hence option B is incorrect. 'Rose' is a verb, it expresses the action of waking up, or rising, it does not connect the clauses, hence it's not a conjunction, and option C is incorrect. 'Early' is an adverb as it modifies the verb "rose". Adverbs modify adjectives, verbs, and other adverbs. 'Early1 does not connect the clauses, the clause after 'early1 is grammatically incomplete, hence it's not conjunction. Option D is hence, incorrect.
Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 5

Fill in the blank with a suitable option:

He wrote carefully so______his mother could read it

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 5
A conjunction combines or connects two sentences as one. In the given sentence, the clause "his mother could read it" is a dependent/subordinate clause, as it depends on the independent/main clause for its full meaning. Hence for this sentence, subordinating conjunction is required. A conjunction can be a single word, or a phrase, such as even if, as if, as soon as, etc. We have a pair of conjunctions in this sentence, "so...", where we have to find the right word that pairs up with 'so'. The subordinate clause is the purpose behind which the action in the main clause "wrote carefully" takes place, hence we need conjunction that expresses purpose. That' is the most suitable option, it pairs up with 'so' and expresses purpose, 'that' on its own, it refers to purpose as well, hence option A is correct. 'Than' expresses a comparison between the clauses, it compares two people or things. But here there isn't any comparison, hence option B is incorrect. 'If expresses a condition, or a hypothetical situation, it may or may not be true. However, the given sentence is not conditional, hence option C is incorrect. When' expresses time, it is used when two activities take place at the same time, or one activity begins shortly after the other whereas the given sentence does not focus on time but purpose. Hence option D is incorrect.
Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 6

Fill in the blank with the most suitable conjunction:

I did my homework ___________our teacher had instructed.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 6
A conjunction is a word used to connect other words, phrases, or clauses.

'As' is used to connect a result with a cause. In the given sentence, the cause is the 'instruction given by teacher' and the result is the 'homework'.

'In order' is used to introduce a clause of reason and explanation.

'So that' is used to talk about a purpose.

Thus, option A is the correct answer.

Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 7

Identify the conjunction in the following sentence:

After the thunderstorm passed, a rainbow appeared in the sky.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 7
A conjunction's main function is to join or combine two clauses as one, and the type of conjunction used depends on the relationship between these clauses. In the given sentence, "the thunderstorm passed" is a subordinate/dependent clause as it depends on the main clause "a rainbow appeared in the sky" for its full meaning. The comma ',' determines that these are separate clauses, and 'though' is conjunction as it combines them as one sentence, without which the sentence is incomplete. 'After' is subordinating conjunction used for time-related sentences as the one given, and option C is thus, correct. 'The' is an article that modifies the noun "thunderstorm" as a specific noun, and does not connect the clauses together, it's an article hence option A is incorrect. 'A' is also an article, as it modifies the non-specific noun "rainbow", it's an article hence option B is incorrect. 'In' is a preposition that links the noun "sky" to the verb "appeared". It establishes a connection between these two words, and not the clauses. Hence it's not a conjunction and option D is incorrect.
Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 8

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate conjunction:

_________our friends are in trouble, we must help them.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 8
The word 'when' is a conjunction which means 'at the time that'. We know that we have to help our friends at the time that they are in trouble. Hence, this is the most appropriate conjunction to be used in the given blank. Hence, option A is the correct answer.

Option B: The conjunction 'as' is used to indicate that something happens during the time when something else is taking place. The two events joined by the conjunction 'as' should happen at the same time. We help our friends once we know (and immediately after we know) that they are in trouble; And not simultaneously when they are in trouble. Hence, this option is not the most appropriate.

Option C: The conjunction 'than' is used for introducing the second element in a comparison.

Option D: The conjunction 'but' is used to introduce a phrase or clause which contrasts something which has already been mentioned.

In the given sentence, we do not have two things or activities which are either compared or contrasted. Hence, options C and D are incorrect.

Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 9

Fill in the blank with the most suitable conjunction:

It started raining ______Kareena stepped out

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 9
Conjunctions are words that link other words, phrases, or clauses together. 'As soon as' is used to show that something happens immediately i.e. 'at the very moment another action is completed'. In the given sentence, another action of raining started as soon as Kareena stepped out. Thus, option A is the correct answer.
Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 10

Choose the option that best fiMs in the blank:

She ate quickly so_________she could leave early.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 10
A conjunction combines or connects two sentences as one. In the given sentence, subordinating conjunction is required. The clause "she could leave early" is the subordinate/dependent clause because it depends on the main/independent clause "She ate quickly" for its full meaning, so for such a sentence, subordinating conjunction is used. It can be a single word or a phrase, like in the sentence 'so...'. The dependent clause here is the purpose behind which the action in the first clause "ate quickly" takes place. We need to choose which of the options can pair up with 'so'. 'That' when paired up with 'so', and even on its own, expresses purpose, it's the most suitable option, hence option B is correct. Than' is used to express a comparison between two individuals, or things, but here there is no comparison, so option A is incorrect. 'But' is a coordinating conjunction, used when both clauses are independent. It expresses contrast between those clauses whereas the given statement does not express a contrast, hence option C is incorrect. 'Even' is usually paired with 'if and expresses contrast, and not purpose. It cannot pair up with 'so' as they have different meanings, hence option D is also incorrect.
Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 11

Fill in the blank with a suitable option:

She didn't seem to recognize me ______we had never met

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 11
A conjunction is used to connect words, clauses or phrases.

'Like' is used as a conjunction instead of as.

'As if is used to say how something seems from the information known. 'Although' is used to contrast ideas.

Yet' is used to mean nevertheless or however. It carries a sense of negation. Thus, option B is the correct answer.

Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 12

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate conjunction:

__________my uncle is old, he thinks like a child.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 12
Subordinating conjunction is a word that links a dependent clause to an independent clause. 'But' is used to connect ideas that contrast. That' is used for introducing a clause stating a fact. 'As' is used for showing comparison. 'Although' is used for introducing a statement that makes the main statement in a sentence seem surprising. In the given sentence, such a surprise statement is established.

Thus, option C is the correct answer.

Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 13

Identify the conjunction in the following sentence:

They had little money, but they were very content

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 13
In the given statement, 'but' is the conjunction, more specifically it's coordinating conjunction of the adversative/contrasting type. 'But' combines the independent sentences "They had little money" and "they were very content" that are contrast in meaning, "little money" does not imply "very content", as we know most of us aren't content with little money. Hence, option B is correct. 'Very1 is an adverb that modifies an adjective, verb, or adverb to emphasize its meaning, here it modifies the adjective 'content'. It does not combine the clauses, hence option A is incorrect, it's not conjunction. 'They' is a pronoun, a pronoun replaces a noun that's been mentioned before, and 'they' here refers to a group of people. As it does not combine the clauses, it's not a conjunction, and option C is incorrect. 'Little' is an adjective that modifies the noun 'money', it's not conjunction as it doesn't perform the function of combining clauses. Hence, option D is incorrect.
Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 14

Fill in the blank with the most suitable conjunction:

The hurt bird could hop _____it could not fly.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 14
Conjunctions are words that link other words, phrases or clauses together. 'And' is used to link two equal parts of the sentence. 'But' is used to show contrast. Here, contrast is described as the hurt bird could hop but because of injury, it cannot fly. 'So' provides the purpose of something. 'Because' is used for giving reasons. Thus, option A is the correct answer. Rest of the options are incorrect.
Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 15

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

He broke his leg_________he was skiing.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 15
A conjunction is a word used to connect words, clauses, or phrases.

'After' is used to consider what happened in the past.

'Before' is used to state 'previously to the time when.

When' is used to mean 'at the time that'. The given sentence is talking about the accident which happened when he was skiing.

'As soon as' is used to show that something happens immediately, i.e. ‘at the very moment another action is completed’, or ‘shortly after another action is completed'. Thus, option C is the correct answer.

Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 16

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate conjunction:

Rocky is wasting his money________his parents are starving.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 16
Subordinating conjunction is a word that links a dependent clause to an independent clause. While' is used at the same time as something else is happening. In the given sentence, actions are happening at the same time. Than' is used to compare two things in the sentence. Then' is used to denote time. 'Since' is used to denote a specific time or event in the past.

Thus, option C is the correct answer.

Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 17

Identify the correct version of the given sentence:

No sooner she left the room than her baby started to cry.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 17

Conjunctions are words that link other words, phrases, or clauses together.

The structure no sooner is used to talk about something that happens immediately after something else. When no sooner comes at the beginning of a sentence, we use inverted word order. That means the auxiliary verb comes before the subject. The conjunction 'No sooner — than' is also used to denote simultaneous actions. The given sentence depicts that as soon as she left the room, her baby started to cry immediately. These two activities take place almost simultaneously. There is no real-time difference between them. Thus Option B is correct. Option D, as well as Option C, can be ruled out as Then' indicates 'in that case'. We use 'then' with 'if to talk about cause and effect but it cannot be used in association with 'no sooner' which is used in case of an event happening immediately after something else. When no sooner is used in the front position, we invert the order of the auxiliary verb and subject. Option A is incorrect as the auxiliary verb 'had' is missing after no sooner.

Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 18

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate conjunction:

________Kanu or her brother has won the trophy.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 18
The conjunctions, 'either.. or' and 'neither... nor' are used in pairs and are called correlative conjunctions. 'Either... or' is used to make a comparison between two ideas, and only one of them will happen. While 'either' has a positive connotation, 'neither' holds a negative significance.

There are two nouns in the given sentence viz. 'Kanu' and 'her brother'. However, the verb, 'has won' indicates that the subject of the sentence is a singular noun. Hence, only one of the two nouns is the subject. In such statements, the correlative conjunction, 'either., or' is used. We can also see that the word 'or' is used in the sentence. This is a clue that the appropriate correlative conjunction which can be used is 'either'. Option B is correct. Option A: 'Neither., nor' is used to make a negative statement about two nouns.

'Neither' always appears in a sentence along with the word, 'nor'. The word, 'nor' does not appear in this sentence. Hence, option A is incorrect.

Option C: The conjunction 'when' means 'at' or 'during the time that'. It denotes the time of a particular action. The clause beginning with 'when' should be followed or preceded by another independent clause. In this sentence, there is only one clause. Hence, option C is incorrect.

Option D: The conjunction 'so' is used to show the reason for something. In the given sentence, there is no word indicating that it is conveying a reason. Hence, option D is incorrect.

Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 19

Fill in the blank with the suitable conjunction from the options given:

The house______we've just bought overlooks the beach.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 19
The conjunction 'that' is used to identify a specific person or thing observed or heard by the speaker. In this sentence, the speaker is using this particular conjunction to specify the house which overlooks the sea. Hence option A is the correct answer.

Option B is incorrect because 'what' is used to ask for information specifying something or to ask about the reason for something. So, this conjunction cannot be used to frame a complete meaningful sentence in the given context.

Then' is used to indicate what happens or happened next, or what should be done next. It is also used to mean ‘at that time’, referring either to the past or the future, 'next' or 'in addition'. As none of these usages of 'then' can make the sentence grammatically correct and meaningful, option C is incorrect as well.

We use 'where' as a conjunction to mean in the place that or in situations that. Since this usage to is not grammatically correct if used in the sentence, option D is incorrect.

Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 20

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

I like New York, ______it's very exciting.

Detailed Solution for Test: Conjunction - 2 - Question 20
The correct answer is Option (a)

BECAUSE is used as a conjunction when we express a reason. The reason the speaker likes New York is the city is exciting.

The remaining options are incorrect because:

SO is used when a reason is expressed first - for e.g. This place is near the shops SO I like living here.

AND is used in the meaning of IN ADDITION TO.

BUT is used to express contrast.
